CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The United Way of Cleveland is hosting a panel discussion on the limiting critical race theory and its potential effect on education, non-profit organizations, and governmental systems Thursday evening at 6 pm.

Ohio legislators have introduced H.B. 322 and H.B. 327 bills limiting the teaching of critical race theory.
